There's a new tattoo reality show coming to your television screen and no, it's not a competition. Instead, A&E networks are unveiling Hero Ink, a tattoo shop "by first responders, for first responders." Premiering on June 6th, this upcoming series follows the tattoo interactions between artists and clients at Prison Break Tattoos in Houston, Texas. Each and every one of the artists in this shop has a personal connection to first responders, whether it be through police, military, or firefighters.
